I'm not overly sure why 1879 Elizabeth is not on the 1881 census or 1891...and with Mary Ann not appearing too.
Especially with Catherine being on them.

I had found a workhouse record from 1883, with Mary Ann Hanson aged 7 and a Elizabeth Hanson alias Anderson aged 4...which I thought may be them.
Ann Ames their mother had a sister Mary who married a William Anderson in 1855.
That's what got me thinking were they fostered out to extended family?
The downside is that I cannot find the Anderson's either!

Well I suppose to clarify matters Lost could always get a pdf birth of the 1879 Elizabeth.

I shall try that, hopefully if I have her d.o.b I may be able to find out more about her too.
At the moment then, it is both Mary Ann and Elizabeth that just seem to be born with nothing further on them.
I tried looking for Mary Ann via the 1939 register and it gave me a list of ones born on the day/month/year.
So I'll also try searching through to find whilst awaiting the cert for Elizabeth.  :)

I don't think that is the correct birth reg. That could be the Elizabeth who died and then there is birth reg that I posted earlier

Elizabeth Dowling sept qtr 1870 St George in the East vol 1c pg 420 mmn Ames

which would match the age of 8 months given on the 1871 census.
